The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) is the newest of 27 Institutes and Centers (ICs) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This Center was established in December 2011 to transform the translational science process so that new treatments and cures for disease can be delivered to patients faster.
The Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) program in the NCATS Division of Clinical Innovation aims to strengthen and support the entire spectrum of translational research from scientific discovery to improved patient care. Under NCATS leadership, the program supports a national consortium of more than 60 medical research institutions that work together to transform this process. Through this consortium, research teams collaborate to tackle common problems that no one organization can accomplish alone.
Off-campus members of the UMCCTS are eligible to receive access to the UMMS and UMass Amherst libraries. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The leading professional society for clinical and translational science is focused on research, education, advocacy, and mentoring.
This is a campaign of the Association of American Medical Colleges and its member-medical schools and teaching hospitals to raise public awareness of the critical need for sustained federal investment in medical research conducted through the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
